Ethan and Kim are the proud owners of this fantastic bus conversion, complete with a separate fridge just for their craft beer selection. Priorities. 🙂
The couple have two Great Danes and have a hard time finding apartments that will allow their large fur babies, so getting a bus allowed the couple a permanent home — and a way to travel — while keeping their dogs with them.
Because they spent more than a year on the build, they were able to scour Craigslist and Marketplace for nearly everything in their bus, which kept the cost for this gorgeous conversion at just $20,000! And this looks like a $100,000 bus. Tiny Home Tours did a great interview which you can watch below.

For three decades, I worked short-term contracts as a Traveling Physical Therapist.
Similar to these folks, we avoided short-term leases on housing while we experimented with full-time in RecreationVehicles… but the dang things decomposed around us.
Inevitably, we converted a series of commercial vehicles to HouseTrucks and other TinyHomesOnWheels… including a thirty-foot semi trailer.
On today’s show:
* I like the counters on each side on the sink.
I owned a restaurant business for ten years, I know the value of a functional kitchen.
Sooner or later, everybody needs to eat.
Filling between contracts, we also delivered RecreationVehicles manufacturer-to-dealer and dealer-to-shows.
Our decades of experience over a couple hundred thousand miles — condensed into two years — convinced us no RecreationVehicle could withstand the rough logger tracks we explore to our summers around mountain lakes… and our winters on isolated Baja beaches.
2003, we converted a 1997 Ford CF8000 commercial truck to our concept of an ExpeditionVehicle.
With nearly two decades full-time live-aboard, our rig is constantly evolving.
My suggestion to any converters:
* prior to selecting a vehicle, prior to initiating your conversion, develop your RequirementsStatement.
My other suggestion:
* avoid locking-into ‘this rig has to be perfect because it is my forever rig’
As we developed our RequirementsStatement, we quickly realized ‘hit the road’ is our priority, while ‘months/years invested in converting’ failed to make the bottom of the list.
Love all this insight! Those who have “done it” know what’s necessary and what isn’t!
Great style, can’t imagine having to share your small space with those two big fur kids, glad all coverings are washable!
Your home is perfect! I love that you prioritized your dogs needs, after all, they are our family too! Thank you for sharing your build. Good luck with all your future endeavors! Enjoy the ride, life is short.
Just a footnote: I would love to see a diy on the window sills, they’re fabulous!!!
